    It has been put there to help stop the cuff from fraying from wear.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Most likely because that part would be rubbing against the skin the most. I have done a similar trick with my Mil-Tec M65 jacket because the cuff is really awful feeling on bare skin because it is made out of 65% polyester.

    I should have been clearer: this is a repair.

    Cheers, Ade.
